"Can It Be? Parrots Name Their Children, And Those Names, Like Ours, Stick For Life"

"Oh Romeo, oh Romeo," cried Juliet. Being human, she and her boyfriend had names. Is there any other animal that does this? Has names for each other? Oddly enough, yes!

ART Student failure

somedudenamedryan:

Yet again I wasted my time applying to art school. I have wasted so much time and energy to make my self the perfect candidate and yet nothing. Half the people going to this school are just rich kids who had no plans for the future. Thanks Mass Art Sorry I don’t draw anime and i’m not a fucking trust fund child. Sorry some one who has sacrificed everything just for a fucking chance at a better future is not what your looking for. Not that anyone will ever fucking read this or even give a fuck, I have given up on everything. I wont live like this anymore working 3 jobs just to fucking pay rent. Life is not worth living if you cant feel alive.

hi, please don’t feel like a failure for not being able to afford school. it’s commendable that you work to pay your own rent, especially in boston. but don’t assume everyone’s wealthy, many of us struggle with working and being in school full time. it’s super tough and so easy to lose motivation. also massart’s a great school, but it’s got some serious flaws. if you can’t afford it right now, there are other options. your efforts are not in vain! 

paxil lessens my emotions massively, i keep forgetting that i love sad things. i keep forgetting that it’s always been and will always be just me, and that i am an old soul that will visit iceland someday and paint all day and night in the moonlight.

an inevitable chain of actions

A couple months ago I shared some GIFs of invisible things, and I finally got around to putting them together in this video:

When light travels through areas of different air density, it bends. You’ve probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You’re seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

Schlieren Flow Visualization can be used to visually capture these changes in density: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze … even sound.  Special thanks to Mike Hargather, a professor of mechanical engineering at New Mexico Tech, who kindly provided a lot of these videos.

I don’t consider myself a feminist, I prefer to call myself a humanist or an egalitarian.
HOW DID I GET HERE?

enter my gloomy apartment. sometimes i don’t mind the darkness in here, but i dislike boston so much. i really hope i don’t get stuck living here after graduating because it’s the only place i can find work. 

granted, the city does have its perks and i think it’ll be interesting living here in the summer. but i’m going to make trips home as often as i can because i can’t imagine a summer without being at the ocean. despite the consumerist and corporate world tugging at me, i’ll never lose the need for open spaces and trees and quiet in my life.

i don’t remember the last time i arrived at an interview on time and not sweating profusely. :v

seriously i get lost every single time.
